I got some hip pain!


I'm having pain in my hip.  It started as slight pain not too long ago... I thought it was from using the elliptical to warm up before runs, but that doesn't make much sense.  It feels entirely muscular, and no, there's no pain radiating down my leg, or into my knee, or into my back.  Maybe into my butt a little...  it hurts when I push off on this leg (my right), when I walk, go up stairs, etc.  It's not debilitating, but was very uncomfortable on my run last night.  Any thoughts?  I'm going to try to upload a fabulous mspaint picture I created showing where it is.  It's on the outside of my hip, like on top of where the femur hooks up to the pelvis.  It's not on the pelvis/hipbone itself.  Muscle strain?

    It sounds like hip bursitis, a common problem in distance runners. A little PT will help that, see an ortho.

    Re: I got some hip pain!

    Sorry about hip pain.   I was training for first Marathon, about 5 weeks before started having r hip pain. I  took four days off before marathon thinking it would be okay.   Well, mile 5 pain started - then it would go away then it would come back and be worse.  I knew the marathon would not be about time just focused on finishing.  Mile 20 felt a pop and the pain was so intense.  I finished the marathon but in alot of pain.   The Dr at the finish line said it was my it band and some kind of fluid sac probably popped.(couldn't focus to much on what was being said cuz I just finished my first marathon)  Went to ER when I got home had and xray- they said it was bursitis and a muscle sprain.  It's been 3 weeks and haven't ran yet, but I have no more hip pain in my r side.   Will go to pt this week to see if they think I am ready to run again.

    When I've put too many miles on a pair of shoes, I get hip pain.  You may need to get new shoes with better support.
